Educating Emma by Kira Devlin

educating emma book coverI recently spent a few hours with the new novel by a friend of mine, Kira Devlin. She’s written a short novella length erotic romance novel titled Educating Emma. It’s got a “Happily for Now” kind of ending, and the majority of the novel gives us a glimpse into the BDSM lifestyle of a university professor named Grant Morgan and his recently graduated assistant, Emma. After a year of working together in close quarters, attracted to each other but hiding it as well as they can manage, Grant and Emma both find themselves at a party looking to hook up with partners to distract them and let out a little pent up tension. What they don’t expect is to run into each other.

What follows is a look at the sort of lifestyle Professor Morgan leads behind closed doors, one that Emma is very intrigued by. There’s a good bit of character development with these two characters as we meet them on Emma’s last day in the Professor’s office and we see the thoughts of both of them leading up to the party, including their desires for each other, leading them to need the kind of night that’s at the crux of the story. The Dominant/Submissive relationship is handled patiently and intimately between the characters, and the reader is along for each moment Emma has to check in with herself to make sure she knows what she’s getting into.

The book is up on Amazon for $0.99 and if erom novels are your thing, it’s a small price to pay for admission. I gave it 5 stars over on Goodreads.

She may be graduating, but her education is just beginning …

For Emma, working for Professor Morgan has been pure torture. His commanding presence gives her the kind of ideas that no grad student should entertain about her boss. So when a friend offers her a chance to live out her forbidden fantasies, she jumps at the chance. Maybe if she can find a man to give her the dominance she needs, she’ll forget all about the thrill she gets in her professor’s presence …

Grant Morgan needs an outlet for his desire, one with lush curves and a taste for submission – one that isn’t relying on him to write a professional recommendation. He’s kept a tight leash on his instincts around Emma, but now that she’s leaving, he’s in desperate need of release. A private party should be exactly what he’s looking for.

But when that party brings him face to face with Emma, Grant finds that he has a lot more to teach her than he ever dared to dream …
